So so, subject to gov. censorship
Gov censorship is the biggest issue. After that, or because of that, you can't be anonymous to Sina Co. That's going to not change until the China government changes its attitude, which is likely never.
The next biggest issue is that every pic uploaded, Sina Co stamps their name on it.
The viewer isn't bad but contains a half done feature to let you create follow categories. But there is only one category.
Some things are hard to use like finding trending topics.
The image viewer shows only small images rather than let the image take up the whole screen like on all the twitter clients I've used.
Each block of text in twitter platforms can be selected for copy/paste. To do the same with WeiBo you need to tap, and tap to get to some point to copy paste. So much hard work. I use copy/paste to get text to a translator that reads chinese. It's important to make things easy to use, not hard.
Notifications don't persist: in the morning i have three notifications I wish to look at. But the problem is that after clicking on one (and viewing it), I can't go back to notifications and look at the other two because they will be gone.
All of this adds up to better than nothing, it works. The features are below average.
Must have app if you read Chinese
Follow Chinese elites
